Septmeber KAL

September 02, 2016

Hard to believe it is September already!  Fall is around the corner and the weather will be cooling down so we can wear our beautiful knitting items!  

Our KAL for September is Close to You by Justyn Lorkowska.  This stylish shawl is knitted from one end with gradual increases to form a triangular shawl and it's customizable in size. The zigzag border with eyelets gives a nice touch and makes the knitting interesting.  This pattern works up beautifully in a highly variegated hand dyed yarn.  Our store sample is knit out of Scientific Sock from NanoStitch Lab.  It would also look beautiful in yarn from our trunk show with Savvy Skeins.

August Knit-a-Long

July 30, 2016

It's hard to believe it's almost August and time for a new KAL!  We had fun in July with the Medano Beach, perfect for trips to the farmers market or the beach.

For August we have chosen Reversible Listado Cowl.

This pattern is designed to accomodate a self-striping yarn to create vertical and horizontal lines.  Our store sample is made out of one skein of Cascade Longwood Sport which is 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino.  It has a beautiful drape and is incredibly soft to work with!

This will be a great pattern for that transitional Fall weather that will be upon us soon!

Thanks for reading and enjoy this month's KAL!
